Outbreak III: Monkeys on the Internetz

I was thinking today that, since Hollywood seems to be plum out of original ideas, it wouldn't be too long before someone decides to make a movie about all the huge Internet stars who have gained fame through viral videos. It made me start wondering about casting decisions....

Tay "Chocolate Rain" Zonday - Obviously, this role would be the comeback that Jaleel White (and no one else) has been waiting for.

Miss Teen South Carolina - Obviously, this role would be the one to make everyone take Jessica Simpson seriously as an actress.

The Kid from Brooklyn - Gotta be Danny Aiello.

Chad Vader - Since I'm pretty sure James Earl Jones would refuse, Rick Moranis.

Stacy "Star Wars Trumpeter" Hedger - Amy Sedaris. That would be hilarious.

Star Wars Kid - Jack Black. That would be even more hilarious.

Numa Numa Boy - Kyle Gass.

Chris Crocker - Well, Seth Green did a fantastic impression for "The Soup," so I think he should get the part. Or maybe Cameron Diaz.

Dramatic Chipmunk - He would probably be a CGI character unless Richard Gere's gerbil was available.

I'm thinking that the theme song would have to be a chorus of some of the best of the worst from American Idol doing a send-up of a Kelly Clarkson hit..."Because of YouTube."

Am I missing anything or anyone?

A couple of those links lit up on my browser. Hmmm, I'm spending way too much time on the Internet.

Had seen some, but not others.

The Star Wars Trumpeter might have been my favorite, as it had a little bit of that Hollywood razzle-dazzle.

I love Amy Sedaris, but I don't know if she could live up to the original performance.

Thanks a lot for these links!

Jack Black as the Star Wars Kid would be awesome. They practically look a like. ^_^

Chris said...

Awesome! I honestly think you may be onto something here. Plus, Jaleel needs the work. Bad.

Manx said...

The Jack Black/Star Wars Kid is my favorite too. Poor Star Wars Kid. I think he's still in therapy.

I'm waiting for the reality show where all these internet celebs have to live in the same house for a year.

Would we call it "The Web-Life" or "The Web-World"?

I'm very happy that I've only seen like two of these. I also don't go to that goddamn "I has cheeseburger," because apparently no one else in the world realizes that f-ing pictures of cats with misspelled words is not funny in the least. You keep commenting on pop culture, and I'll keep telling these e-kids to get offa my e-lawn.

LOL "Richard Gere's gerbil"

The Guv'ner said...


Although Pistols is delirious, LOLCATS are always funny. Silly.

Just THINKING of the Star Wars kid makes me laugh.

This reminds me of that "we are the web" video for net neutrality that starred Leslie Hall (Gem Sweaters), Tron Man, Peter Pan and others.

That video is a masterpiece.

My boyfriend thought Chris Crocker was a maniac girl the first time he saw that video of him crying to leave Britney alone.
He couldn't believe it when I told him that was a guy!
Then to see he and his brother....ugh...disgusting.

Um, you missed Britney running over somebody's foot.

Chris Crocker is just a shorter Alexis Arquette after a bad pill bender.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
